Greater Mercer TMA’s (GMTMA) fourth annual Safe Routes to School Bookmark Design contest is now underway. Mercer County students in third through fifth grade are eligible to show their love of walking by creating a bookmark for the contest with the theme “I like to walk to…with….”
Throughout the year GMTMA works with schools to encourage students to walk and bike to school where it is safe to do so and help communities identify solutions to improve the areas where it is not safe.
“Using this bookmark contest, we hope to get students thinking about walking and biking to school as a fun and healthy choice for themselves and their community “said GMTMA Executive Director Cheryl Kastrenakes.
The winning bookmark design will be printed and distributed to area schools and local libraries. The winner will also receive a $50 gift card. The submission deadline is March 24. For more information about the contest and the Safe Routes to School Program go to gmtma.org.
